Title: Ocular trauma.
Authors: Cassen, J H
Issue Date: Oct 1997
Abstract: A review of the literature was conducted to investigate recent articles about ocular trauma. Eye injuries may be divided into blunt and penetrating types. Males are more affected than females. Evaluation of eye injuries should start with visual acuity and continue with prompt referral to an ophthalmologist as indicated. DESIGN: Medlines search/American Academy of Ophthalmology. RESULTS: Ocular trauma is a frequent reason for emergency room visits. Most injuries stem from sports, recreation, military, occupational, or automotive. DISCUSSION: Patient education is highly recommended, as well as prevention by use of protective polycarbonate eyewear.
